New Location

This will be the last post here on the blog that has served us well since Jack came into the world.

We would love it if you would follow along on our new adventures as we move to Oklahoma and add another baby to the family.

Check out the new blog:

Moving On

Hey everybody. So, life's been busy. In case you weren't aware, we are moving to Oklahoma! In just a few weeks we are heading to Edmond, Oklahoma. I (adam) am taking a new job at And if that weren't enough, we are going to be having another baby in May! Exciting times in the Bouse House.

Because of our new life adventures, we are going to start fresh and clean with a new blog. So, this post and maybe another before we will officially switch over. We will post links here and on Facebook so everybody can follow along as we head west.

For now, I'm going to include a video of Jack playing in the leaves today:

Jack is Two!

Well, we officially have a 2 year-old!
Jack turned two a few weeks ago - and boy is he two!
Here are some pictures of the fun from the past few weeks.

Not on his birthday, but this is a fun picture of Jack and his friends Aaron and Lincoln.

The homemade birthday cake.

And the most fun part, the presents!

This kid was excited about his new trike!

From a few days earlier, he loves his car tower from the Colorado Smiths.

Eating cake and ice cream on his new Super Why plate.

Pictures with all of the grandparents (even if Jack didn't want to pay attention).

And all of this just a few weeks after Stacey and I celebrated 5 years of marriage!
We are certainly a lucky family.

Short Video from the Beach

It really is not a very interesting video, but it's the best we've got. Because of the humidity and salt water, we weren't able to shoot much video. But nonetheless, here is Jack arriving at the beach and seeing the ocean for the very first time:

Pictures from the Beach

Here are some more pictures from our trip to the beach.
Overall, a great success and loads of fun.
Jack is now part of the 5th generation from my dad's side of the family to visit Holden Beach, North Carolina.

The big story of the week is that Jack has mastered hurling himself out of his pack-n-play. From day one, he thought it was hilarious to jump out. So, we had to transition him to sleeping in a real bed every nap and every night. Every morning began, promptly at 6:30, with a "thud" and a scamper - followed by a "mommy! daddy!" from about four inches away.

Jack discovered he could fit under the cabinets.
He used it as a place to escape once he swiped pancakes off the counter.

He loved playing in the water - especially the hose.

Here's the ridiculous hat we made him wear for a few days. He loved to dig in the sand.

Walking across the beach with Grandpa Roundtree.

He loved to shove things into the sand.

And he wasn't afraid of the water. He kept calling it "pool."

Doing dishes with grandma one morning.

We took a kiddie pool so he could play on the deck.

And we tried to take a family picture - but he is so easily distracted.
And our camera was uber-sensitive to the moisture and only worked half the time.

I'll try to post a few videos soon.
